Abstract

Machine vision assisted optical alignment is a common practice in manufacturing. Nonnally, the cameras are aligned to fiducial/locating marks that are on the same focal plane as the object being assembled. However, when the objects to be aligned are not on the same focal plane, the nonnality of the camera and optics to the object being aligned become of utmost importance.
